“Operation Christmas Child,” a project of Samaritan’s Purse, brings good news and great joy to children around the world by gifting shoeboxes filled with fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.

Samaritan’s Purse is a humanitarian aid organization that provides aid to people in physical need as a key part of Christian missionary work. Each year, people of all ages pack shoebox gifts to help children in need around the world. Parents often use the project to teach their kids about giving. Churches and groups of all sizes collect boxes from their communities, and thousands of volunteers serve annually to help inspect, prepare, and ship shoeboxes to over 100 countries. Only a $10 donation is required to cover project costs–including shipping–for each shoebox.

This year, staff members at DCR Strategies teamed up to send more than 50 boxes to children in need across the world.
